Amphenol ICC OSFP Interconnect System

Amphenol ICC’s OSFP Interconnect System features 60 contacts per port on a 0.6mm pitch, supporting 56Gbps PAM4 and 25Gbps NRZ transmission.  With 8 high-speed channels, this enables up to 400Gbps PAM4 and 200Gbps NRZ aggregate bandwidth.

There are also 10 power and control pins providing up to 16W of power per port independent of cage configurations, allowing copper and optical devices to be used without thermal management concerns. The system was designed with advanced internal grounding features for improved signal integrity and the potential to upgrade to 112Gbps PAM4 in the future.

Amphenol ICC offers SMT connectors with optional solder rings for board-to-board connections, inline cages up to 1x4, and combo ports up to 2x6.
